OK, this is difficult to explain...
In my plugin object I calculate the velocity of several objects in the scene by storing their position in an array and comparing the stored positions with the current positions when the plugin is executed next time.
This works fine while the animation is running.
But the problem is: When I e.g. stop the animation, or click somewhere in the ObjectManager, the plugin is executed again. Since in that case no scene time has passed since the last execution, the last and current positions are the same and the resulting velocity is zero.
How can I detect of the animation is running or if the user just clicked somewhere, so I can prevent the unnecessary storing of data?
Thanks for any help!
